The easiest way to run the program is to download the latest jar file from the summary page at http://sourceforge.net/projects/moyoman. Click on download for the Moyoman executable package. Once you have downloaded this file, unjar it using the jar program or any zip utility. Double click on the Moyoman.jar file in the moyoman directory, or from the command line: cd moyoman; java - jar Moyoman.jar. Moyoman should now be running.
If you play a game against Moyoman, you can open the debug window to examine how Moyoman generates its move. If you are having Moyoman play against itself, you can turn off auto move which is under the Options menu. Now, you can open a debug window for black and white, and watch the results after each move. To cause the next move to be played, you can click the right arrow at the top of the window, or select Next Move from the Options menu.
The second method is to obtain the source code by doing a read only checkout from CVS. This is the preferred method, since you can then do a CVS update at any time to get the most recent code. Obviously, there will not be a new jar file in the Moyoman source package every time a CVS change occurs, so this method ensures that you will have the most up to date code, and incremental updates are much easier.
To do a read only checkout, type the following command exactly:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/moyoman co moyoman
You may first need to set the CVS_RSH variable to ssh.
